Welcome! It can be a bit confusing to navigate the forum.

At the top, under the header, are the main tabs: "dancers," "teachers," "studio owners," etc. Under the "dancers" tab you'll see the main forums with their drop down lists.

"Main" takes you to the front page. Won't lie, I almost never click there.

"Hot!" is a list of the most recent threads. This is the page I have bookmarked.

"General" is non-dance related stuff and all the FAQ and administrative boards.

"Adults" is non-dance stuff. A lot of relationship advice happens here. And financial troubles. And house problems. And general grown-up stuff.

"Advice" is non-dance related advice. Home to the loved/loathed secrets board where you can anonymously ask a question. And yes it really is anonymous.

"Arts" is other types of art. This is also where stuff like the body art forum are.

Then all the dance genres with their subforums. Wanna talk tap? There's a board for that. Question about pointe? A forum for that too.

Karma is DDN's version of "likes" or "favorites" or "upvotes" except you have to give a reason for why you like it.
